Bid on BRMC guitars for Sweet Relief

From BRMC’s mailing list earlier today, details on the charity auction mentioned in the previous post:

Hey everyone, so since this is going to be the 10th Anniversary of the release of the album ‘Howl’ on Saturday, we decided it’d be a good occasion/cause to donate two of our acoustic guitars to the Sweet Relief charity foundation.

Come morning both acoustic guitars (each with a signed copy of the ‘Howl’ on Vinyl) are being put up for auction and you can bid online if interested. The auction apparently lasts for two weeks and will raise money for the cause.

For those of you who may not know, Sweet Relief Musicians Fund provides assistance to all types of career musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems. The people that run this organization were incredibly supportive, amongst many others, throughout Leah’s recovery this past year. They are really a godsend though for so many struggling every day, and we hope they are able to carry on for a long time to come.

From,
BRMC

LIVE IN PARIS IS AVAILABLE NOW!

After some slight snags, the Live in Paris CD/DVD is now officially released! Some places have gotten it on the release date (June 9th), though this notice was posted on BRMC’s Facebook page:

It hasn’t gone unnoticed by us that several people have expressed their frustration at not having yet received their CD/DVD order of Live in Paris. We hear you and have checked with the various web stores & labels around the world and can confirm that all CD/DVD orders have been shipped at the beginning of this week, with the exception of those in the US who ordered both the CD/DVD & vinyl, who have been contacted directly.

Please let us know if you HAVE received your order or if you’re still waiting as we are doing everything we can to hold the labels and stores accountable for delivering on their end.

We will stay all over this until everyone receives their order.

Sincerely,

BRMC Management

VH1 and The 405 have posted the video for “Spread Your Love” from the DVD, if you haven’t watched it on Palladia.

Here is the official email announcement from BRMC’s mailing list on the release, along with some excellent photos by Wallendorff Photography:

LIVE IN PARIS IS AVAILABLE NOW!
 

“Like giving birth to a raging baby rhinoceros, this “Live in Paris” DVD is finally out. It’s been an obscene labor of love from day one with everything from artwork, to audio mixing, mastering, to Peter having a demon skull CGI’ed onto his face. But it’s finally out of our filthy hands and hopefully into yours very soon.

Thank you to everyone again for being so understanding with the audio fixes we had to make at the last minute, hopefully it’s worth the wait though. And for all of you overseas I guess we’ll be seeing you for another round of bruises and bites real soon. We do wish we could play more shows in more countries this summer but we still need to take it somewhat slow right now. Leah has been killing it though this week, training like she’s in a goddamn Rocky montage, someone really needs to give her an Ativan or something, the girls officially off her rocker.”

The Live In Paris CD/DVD is available now on iTunes HERE.

Update On Leah’s Health

A few days ago, BRMC posted this to the email list:

‘We have been overwhelmed by the concern and support from everyone out there with regards to Leah’s medical condition. We just wanted to let everyone know that surgery has been scheduled for late November with one of the top neurosurgeons in Los Angeles (who is coincidentally also a very big BRMC fan). This is a relatively safe procedure. However, there will be a considerable recovery time needed with physical therapy. We will keep everyone updated though in the months ahead, as we know there is so much genuine concern and support all around us at this time. For those of you who have been asking how to help, there is a donation link below. As well as an exclusive BRMC t-shirt, of which all proceeds go towards medical expenses.’

“I Want to BeLeah” T-Shirt

“All proceeds of this t-shirt will go towards Leah’s surgery and recovery. We thank you for your help & support” – Robert & Peter

(This is a pre-order, your order will ship in 3-4 weeks.)

“The Art of Dying” at George Fest/Best Fest

In case you were unable to attend George Fest at The Fonda Theatre Los Angeles September 28, 2014, a couple videographers were kind enough to record the song BRMC played called “The Art of Dying” from George Harrison’s 1970 album ‘All Things Must Pass.’  (Photo: Rozette Diaz/RestlessCities.com)

There are also many other photos of BRMC on their Facebook album by Michelle Shiers Photography, which are also featured on BuzzBandsLA’s review.
